Channel V's Friends to take a seasonal break; make way for game show Distraction
Kabir Sadanand’s youth-based show Friends – Conditions Apply on Channel V will soon take a seasonal break, only to come back in a revamped avatar!!
Yes, you heard it right! The show which narrates the tale of Shakti, essayed by Shivani Tomar who sets herself on a journey to free her father from the clutches of law, will take a break on 6 February.
However, the biggest highpoint in the season finale episodes will be that Shakti will face a huge hurdle in the form of a revelation that will spoil all chances of her setting her father free.
A reliable source tells us, “The season will end on a cliff hanger, with one of the hostages being killed. And in the new season, the channel and maker have decided to bring some interesting back stories to the viewers as to what happened after Shakti faced this situation. The show will also have some added flavour in its return phase.”
We hear that the channel decided to take a seasonal break and return with a revamped story owing to the cricket fever due to set in with the World Cup 2015 being round the corner. Hence, Friends – Conditions Apply will return sometime in April, is what we get to hear as of now.
When contacted, Producer Kabir Sadanand confirmed the seasonal break development.
Friends will make way for the Rithvik Dhanjani hosted game show, Distraction which will have contestants answering fun-filled questions while being distracted in a big way. Distraction will launch on 9 February and will air from Monday to Friday. This international format has acquired immense popularity abroad.
